I'm talking about swear words (profanity).

Like just bad words? I don’t think that’s a specific sin. And when it comes to curses, the curses we see in the Bible are very different from we most people understand as curses nowadays

I guess this is also making me wonder about the phrase "using the LORD's name in vain"? Is there clarity on that as well?

I think there are bad words (profanity) which can be offensive and lead some astray (for example, if we know that our words are important, one would not carelessly use profanity). However, in the Scriptures, there are more worse words than profanity, meaning that God actually sees lies about His word as more harmful too. In Hosea 4:6 people are destroyed from their lack of knowledge, meaning that they have not understood the word of God correctly and have been misled by their leaders. Therefore, we must be vigilant against lies even more than just profanity.

I always wondered this! How about phrases like, "Oh my G*d?" 

 

Is it a sin to use G*d's name like that?
